Following on from the "15 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2006, and the "20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2012, both deemed a very successful landmark by the participants and the readership of the Proceedings, we have now reached the 25-year anniversary of the first supply of ERS-1 and TOPEX/Poseidon data products to the Altimetric Community. 

To mark this occasion the European Space Agency, in collaboration with the French Space Agency, CNES, is organising an exceptional Symposium on "25 years of Progress in Radar Altimetry".  This event will be sponsored by other partner agencies and organisations supporting the development of altimetry. Along with this symposium, related events will take place in the same week which includes the annual meeting of the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) and the International DORIS Service (IDS) Workshop, as well as other thematic workshops still to be organised; potential topics are Sea Level Budget Closure for Climate, Coastal Zone, Space for Hydrology, Argo, GODAE OceanView, Operational Oceanography, etc. The Symposium encompassing these events will be held on 24 to 29 of September 2018, in Ponta Delgada, Saõ Miguel Island, Azores Archipelago, Portugal.
